Between ambiguity and clarity: Event in the context of the Science Talks

Especially in times of perceived crisis, many people seek security and meaning. In different ways, both the sciences and faith can provide guidance. But are the answers from the two domains necessarily in contradiction, as religious fundamentalism and esotericism suggest? Or do scientific and ideological perspectives unburden each other and, in an increasingly divided society, are able to enable a novel form of communication and perhaps even have a calming effect? After all, both have in common that the tension between ambiguity and clarity characterizes them in the assessment of many questions.


  • Prof. em. Dr. Winfried Haunerland held the Chair of Liturgical Sciences at the Faculty of Catholic Theology at LMU Munich and was Director of the Ducal Georgianum, the world’s second oldest Catholic seminary.
